Exercise is Medicine for Your Joints

Posted on August 16, 2011

“Even though they have joint disease, patients need to be reminded that physical activity is actually good for them. People with arthritis should be as physically active as possible, even if they accomplish less than the recommended levels.”

“When it comes to physical activity, there is good evidence that the benefits far outweigh the risks and being inactive is especially detrimental to health.”

– Dorothy Dunlop, Associate Professor of Medicine, Northwestern University

Exercise is great medicine. Start today.

Talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have a condition that may affect your ability to safely exercise.
